  • Is this course for you?

    Many of our qualified gas engineers have told us their knowledge of boiler service, repair and maintenance is quite minimal. To combat this, we have devised this comprehensive 5 day course:

    Boiler Fault Finding:
    • Multimeter training
    • Electrical Safety tests
    • Testing pumps
    • Testing switches
    • Testing fans
    • Fan switches
    • Temperature sensors and stats
    • Diverter Valves
    • Domestic Heat Exchangers
    • Expansion Vessels

    Wiring & Heating Controls:
    • 3 Port 2 Port rigs
    • Frost Protection
    • S.I. Programmers
    • Zone Valves
    • Sequence of Wiring
    • Fault Finding

    Please be advised that this course is only available to Gas Safe registered Engineers. Before enrolment, a conservation with the Gas Manage is required

  • Required qualifications

    This 5 day course has been devised by our Gas Manager and the gas team. This course is all hands on, candidates will be working across a range of different boiler makes, old and new to ensure a broader understanding is achieved.

    All boilers are fully operational, providing you with a realistic working environment. The heating controls aspect of this course will ensure an understanding of the various types of wiring systems and diagnosis of heating control faults. Multimeter training will be a large and integral part of this course, showing you how to set the multimeter and use it correctly to identify faults on both heating system controls and boilers.

  • What skills will I develop?

    This particular course can potentially save you and your customers both time and money by enabling you to identify a potential repair to a boiler rather than an immediate replacement. Your knowledge of boiler systems will be greatly enhanced, allowing you to offer a wider range of services to your customers.

    We have an excellent relationship with Bpec, our certificating body and the training that we have provided has also been recognised by Gas Safe as being of a standard that the industry requires. Please be advised that this course is only available to Gas Safe registered Engineers.

  • Careers

    Gas engineers do far more than install and fix boilers – with the right training, they can work with a whole range of gas appliances in both domestic and commercial settings, opening the door to a rich and rewarding career where no one day is like the next. For most people, a gas engineer is a helpful expert who makes sure domestic gas systems are correctly installed and running smoothly. In more troubled times, they’re even the hero who comes in at inconvenient times, ready to fix a boiler on the blink in the bitter cold of midwinter.

    However, that’s not all a gas engineer does. This is a role that will have you wearing many different hats – and one where you’ll never be bored with routine, as every job and every day bring new challenges. As a gas engineer, your job is to solve gas-related problems in domestic and commercial settings, and often with constraints. It’s also a role that’s suited for people who enjoy working with other people and helping them. You’ll spend a lot of time in other people’s homes and workplaces, typically installing, servicing, and repairing various gas appliances and central heating systems.

    Being a gas engineer is sometimes seen as a hard job. It can certainly be challenging. Despite this, figuring out solutions to complex gas and heating problems can be incredibly satisfying, while the excellent salary and prospects for career advancement make this an attractive career for ambitious people

  • Other important information

    We prefer to keep classes small to ensure students receive quality training. There is a maximum of 8 students per group.

    You are welcome to bring your own tools, but we will provide all the tools and equipment required to complete training in the centre.

    You will need to wear protective shoes or boots; full-length trousers and a t-shirt or polo is a typical example of what students wear.

    We accept several different payment methods and finance options are also available.
